    I wish I could tell you what they did to mine but my dealer fixed the sunroof clicks. Do make sure to lube the edges of the sunroof, that was a HUGE reducer of noise (the rubber squeak kind). That said, I looked for another rattle (back passenger side) for over a week only to figure out that it was the seat belt bouncing of the leather seats in the back. lol that is now the only noise my car makes inside when going over bumps.

    I get metallic rattle noise from door panels over bumps. I'm suspecting the speakers.

    ??? The last message you posted was to ask for the Aussie TSB number (that we now know doesn't work)--presumably because you had the same problem as so many on here. You are now saying you got yours actually fixed by some miracle/mysterious process that you have no information about?!?

    Sorry, as a citizen of this community you have to do better than that ;) Please take the time to contact your service department and ask them exactly what they did and whether it is an official procedure. And, don't be so sure it worked until you have had the car in some heat/cooling cycles and environments. Mine is intermittent depending on the external temps and the difference between the temp inside the car and outside the car.

    I don't think I am who you think I am... I never posted a TSB. :) I had the car for about a month after dealer fixed the sunroof, and no clicking sound anymore. I fixed with the door seals (silicone lube) and the edges of the sunroof (pool rubber lube) myself and ended so far with that bouncing seat belt being the only sound. Specially the door rubber seals took over 6-8 applications for them to take.

    BTW all my dealer did, and I quote was "adjust/tighten the sunroof rails"

    My dealer has done the same on mine twice and the noise has come back.

    Well, that's a hell of a lot easier than the nightmare of replacing the rails...so we'll have to see if it lasts.

    I've tried snugging all the bolts I could find on my rails, from the top at least, none of that helped.

    Sorry man, wish I knew anything else to try. :( - just make sure the "sunroof" noise it is that and not something else like it happened to me.
